Thank You for Coming to the Great Night Gala 2024!

Because of you, this has been one of Children's Museum of Pittsburgh's most successful gala nights yet. Together we raised nearly $400,000 to provide unparalleled and award-winning experiences for more than 300,000 children, youth and families again this year.

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you again next year!
